Christmas Eve

Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who are of a fearful heart, ‘Be strong, do not fear!Here is your God. He will come with vengeance,with terrible recompense. He will come and save you.’
Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; then the lame shall leap like a deer, and the tongue of the speechless sing for joy.For waters shall break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert; the burning sand shall become a pool, and the thirsty ground springs of water;the haunt of jackals shall become a swamp,
* the grass shall become reeds and rushes.
And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with singing;everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away. --Isaiah 35: 5-7;10
Sing a new song today for unto us a child is born! And Merry Christmas Eve, everyone!

Thank you, honey and Fr. John's sermon was wonderful. He went to Isaiah too, and spoke of the fear and darkness that was around, especially here with the persons who were in the dark for days and days and he said that his Christmas was the kindness of others during the dark days and that the babe's birth brought us to the light today. I believe it but I wish i were with you. I miss you.
